Add Google Talk Gadget in Orkut, like in Gmail

This Google Talk Gadget stuff is driving me crazy. Although Orkut is integrated with Google Talk, there is no Google Talk gadget inside Orkut. Gmail has that.

Only last week Google announced the gadget can be used in your Personalized Google Homepage or your Blog.
Apparently,ErickXavier used the new Google Talk gadget for this script.
This trick involves a Greasemonkey script, so you must have Firefox installed with the Greasemonkey addon.
On installation of the script, a Google Talk chat window will appear in your Orkut sidebar, just like in Gmail.

How do ya do it?
Once Firefox is installed with the Greasemonkey addon, just install this script from Userscripts.
If this is too much work, you probably will have to wait untill Google embeds Google Talk in Orkut.
